Tracey hosts regular Pensioners Advice and Information Fairs across the constituency. Tracey invites all pensioners, their families, friends and carers in the local areas of Medway and Tonbridge & Malling to attend these free events which shared information and advice about the local services, support and activities available locally.
Up to 60 organisations who have a stall, which can include Active Retirement Associations, Care Groups, Health Services, Seniors Forums, Arriva, Kent Fire & Rescue & Kent Police, Folk Dancing, Citizens & Pensions Advice, volunteering opportunities, Rambling, Bowls and other sports & leisure groups, Charities, community recreational groups, support services and many more! Tea, coffee and cake was also available to all visitors.
Recognising that with a little extra support older people can live well and provide an outstanding contribution to the community, Tracey is committed to taking a proactive approach.
Following her first Pensioners Fair, Tracey said: “I am overwhelmed with the turnout for my first ever Pensioners Fairs. Not only did we have over 60 stalls but more than 700 people visited the Fairs. We had some brilliant feedback from stall holders and residents and all in all I am really pleased with how the events went. The events was all arranged through goodwill and through kind donations for refreshments we raised nearly £300 for the Royal British Legion Industries Memorial Garden!
My heartfelt thanks to all those who came to support and the wonderful team who helped with all set up and ensure that they ran smoothly. I am also so grateful to the RBLI and the Bishop of Rochester Academy who let us use their facilities."
Tracey next Pensioners Fair will be held on Thursday 31 May 2018 at the Victory Academy in Chatham so please do come along if this is something you think you might find helpful!
